He was on duty at the height of Russian aggression when the Berlin Wall was erected in 1961. He was honorably discharged the following year; then alerted to "standby" during the October Cuban Missile Crisis.
John returned home and enrolled at now Eastern KY University to finish his business/marketing degrees, thereby meeting his soulmate, Joie. They married August 16, 1963.
Following graduation, he joined Ashland Oil and Refining Company retiring as Director of Executive Meetings and Events. He served as member, president and chairman of the board for E.R.C. in Washington, D.C., a world-wide organization focusing on relocation needs of employees, major companies and realtor services.
